The Illinois Tollway's inspector general has resigned after coming under fire from Illinois Attorney General Lisa Madigan.ABC7 news partner The Daily Herald says Tollway officials are not releasing any details about Tracy Smith's unexpected resignation.

Earlier this week, Madigan's office raised concerns about Smith and a possible conflict of interest because of her law school friendship with the wife of Tollway Authority Chairman John Mitola.

Smith tells the Daily Herald that her relationship did not prevent her from doing her job effectively.
